In the Preakness field, no other horse has more than two races with a 100-plus Speed Score (Muth and Imagination have two apiece).

Mystik Dan's blazing average in his last three starts (108.3 average Speed Score) is a full 13.0 points higher than the field average's last three.

He's a favorite for a reason -- and it's not just the Kentucky Derby win.
